Singing the tune of victory – that seems to be cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan’s mantra.

As the world watched Pakistan go to polls on Wednesday with its two major parties PTI and PMN-L battling it out for the top spot, Imran Khan wowed social media with his swagger.

Even as voting was underway in Pakistan after a prolonged and muddy campaign session that has left the country deeply polarized, a video of Imran Khan in his car blasting the theme song of the 1992 ICC World Cup 'The World is Coming Down' went viral on social media.

The video was reportedly shot while the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief, who is in the race for becoming the new Pak Prime Minister, was on his way back after casting his vote in the NA-53 constituency in Islamabad.

In it, the former cricketer is seen blasting the theme song from the 1992 World Cup which incidentally Pakistan won. Imran had been the captain of the winning Pakistani cricket team. Many of his supporters are claiming that the song was symbolic of Imran’s confidence and imminent success.

Many of the cricketer's fans hailed the video as a warm reminder of the 1992 victory, the only World Cup victory in Pakistan's kitty so far.

Incidentally, the date of the 1992 World Cup was March 25 while the elections were being held on July 25, a similarity that hopeful fans were quick to spot.

Wednesday's election is being seen as crucial one in Pakistan. Imran's main rival isPML-N, founded by now-jailed former President Nawaz Sharif. The PTI chief has focused his campaign heavily on anti-corruption. Even after casting his vote, Imran spoke to media persons and asked Pakistanis to give change a chance by voting them in.

But while the former cricketer seems to be taking a leaf out of his glory days, will Imran's magic work again to win his party the numbers?
